We stayed at this hotel in october for two nights and had a lovely time wandering about the city. The hotel was very clean and comfortable, the room large with good sized bathroom. The view from the terrace onto the garden was lovely, very peaceful after a busy day. Breakfast choice was very adequate and the parking was safe and...

The hotel's location is a longish walk down to the city but a very long walk back up the hill This is a very comfortable hotel but the reception area can be crowded with lots of students awaiting instructions - it doubles up as a training school for hotel staff. Everyone was attentive and the free parking welcome as was...

The hotel is a couple of kilometers from the train station and a couple of blocks further yet from the ferry wharf. Print a very detailed Google map if you are going to walk the couple of kilometers there from the train station. The building is attractive and situated on very pleasant grounds with a back garden with a huge...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Las Carolinas Hotel-School is located within a plot of land with the same name, "Las Carolinas", and is managed by the Cantabrian Hotel and Catering Business Association. Young catering students and chefs are trained here. It occupies a XIX century restored mansion which has 500m2 gardens with two splendid magnolias and a thousand-year-old yew, among other specimens. It subsists in a truly rural environment within the city. Las Carolinas Hotel-School is also located at the top of a hill with spectacular views of Santander and is only 10 minutes away walking distance from the city centre. The Hotel School Project aims to endow the catering and hotel industry with qualified personnel. It seeks to do so by training professionals within the industry's different fields of work. All of the association's training activities are gathered within this single space. These training programmes have been designed to be both theoretical and practical, focusing on kitchen, dining room and hotel management. In order to offer adequate training, there is nothing better than a training centre where students can put the theory they have previously learnt into practice. The main building has thus been turned into a small hotel with 13 rooms and a dining room with a capacity for 40. It operates as a conventional hotel and catering business. The rooms at the Hotel School are decorated in s simple manner, with light wooden furniture and floors. They are all equipped with two beds or a double-bed, a desk, central heating, a bath, a hairdryer and amenities. To start the day off, a full buffet breakfast is also included within our accommodation price. During the academic period, a menu is offered at lunch time which includes an appetizer, a first course and a second course. On Thursday and Friday evenings we prepare a sampling menu. All meals must be booked in advance. All the services at the hotel school are offered by industry students and workers, with a special focus on personalization and quality. ... more   less
